Making a custom Engine cover - don't like V8 (suggestions?)

I am awaiting the arrival a used LS3 engine cover that I plan to paint/modify (I'll store the stock cover). I have searched the DIY and this forum for ideas like cutting the 2 top inserts and adding the mesh which I like a lot. But I have not found an alternative for that less than thrilling plastic embossed V8. Would have preferred an LS3 or SS but a plain jane V8 is boring. I even thought about just cutting it out and placing mesh behind it as well.

Any creative ideas would be appreciated (I am leaning toward RPI Designs insert right now

they make an SS engine cover plate that installs over the V8 on the engine cover, has them.

the SS comes in red or white

**edit** i clicked your link after i posted, but i think that SS plate is better quality than the rpi

I am pretty sure Roger at Emblem Pros could come up with something customized for you if that is what you are after.
